I am totally THAT mom that when heading to a Disney Park wants to dress the part. I think it’s super cute (& fun!) when families try to match and top off their outfits with the famous Mickey or Minnie ears. Here’s a look at some of my favorite Disney themed apparel and where you can shop for some really great pieces for your next trip.


H&M – When I put THIS picture up of Victor on my instagram last week, I had numerous messages saying they couldn’t believe his outfit was from H&M. They are my #1 go to shop for Disney apparel! They have a great selection for women, kids and babies and have every character you could think of. They also have some really different pieces like the cap shown above with the Mickey hands in a heart and Minnie hightops. From classic Minnie sundresses to Mickey denim jeans – you will absolutely find something you love here and at a great price point.

Target – This is my one stop shop if I am looking to grab a graphic tee for me and the family when pinched for time. Target carries, in store, a few different classic Disney character tees but if you have time to order online they have a wide variety of really cute stuff!

Disney StoreOBVIOUSLY. The online Disney store literally has everything you could want including tees for men (like the gray Captain Mickey above) which I always have a hard time finding else where. The Minnie Mouse flannel bow shirt above is one of my favorite pieces…. ever. Another favorite is the super cute Swap Your Bow Minnie Mouse Ear Headband. This headband was recently gifted to me at #DisneySMMC and I can’t wait to pick up one of these other bows to rock on my next visit.

Danielle Nicole – Danielle Nicole and Disney have collaborated to create a co-branded handbag collection inspired by Disney Princesses and other iconic characters. These bags are AMAZING and perfect for anyone Disney obsessed. The collection has a wide variety of totes, crossbody bags and clutches. The Evil Queen Backpack (show above) is one of my favorites!

Zara – This is another one of those staple sites to find unique pieces for your next trip. While they don’t have a wide variety like some of the other shops listed here, you are guaranteed to find something you fall in love with for the kids. How cuteeee are these denim shorts??

Forever 21 – I was surprised when I found out F21 carried items with Mickey + Minnie on them for both women and girls. Not only are they priced REALLY well… they are super cute! I recently picked up this bomber jacker and the quality is incredible.

Some other shops you should check out are: Her Universe, Old Navy, Hot Topic and The Gap.

Greece has always been on my MUST VISIT list, so my husband and I didn’t think twice on making it the destination for our honeymoon. Since we aren’t very traditional, we skipped out on engagement photos and instead decided to do a photoshoot while in Santorini, our first stop in Greece. I use Tripadvisor for all travel related questions before any of my trips, so I posted in one of the forums looking for a photographer but honestly all of the suggestions sent to me just weren’t my style. A few weeks before our honeymoon I got a message from a photographer, RAZMIK. He is based out of Lebanon but would be in Santorini, the same time we would be, shooting a wedding. I checked out his website and I booked him right away! Our day shooting around Oia with Razmik and his wife Rita was nothing short of magical. The photos captured on our honeymoon session are some of my favorite memories.

I highly recommend booking a honeymoon shoot if your budget allows, even if it’s only an hour or two.  We spent a few hours with Razmik, so we left the creativity and locations up to him but if you are short on time, discuss your vision with your photographer. Click HERE to check out RAZMIK’s website. Since he is a traveling photograper he might just be in whatever European city you are visiting.

Here are a few of our favorite shots:

It’s been almost 5 years since I traveled to Budapest.

Back in 2013 when my boyfriend (now husband) suggested it as one of the stops for a multi city Europe vacation I was planning I was like whattttt??? Budapest? Where is that and why do we want to go? Long story short, it’s in Hungary and that is where his family is from.

What I didn’t realize is that I would be exploring one of the most underrated cities with amazing medieval architecture, cool Turkish baths and several historic bridges. OH & they have a love for goulash and paprika… 2 things I am not a fan of to be honest but if that’s your thing – go for it.

Here are 12 photos that will make you want to visit Budapest:

  1. Hungarian Parliament Building – how stunning is this structure?

2. Not too shabby at night either….

4. Gelato Rose?! YES, please.

5. In a city filled with history, the Shoes on the Danube is one of the most moving memorials in Europe.

6. Ride in style while visiting Margaret Island.

7. The Fisherman’s Bastion is one of my favorite spots in Budapest. You get the absolute BEST panoramic view across the Danube, Margaret Island and Pest!

8. Hop on the Buda Castle Hill Funicular to give your feet a break and for this view.

9. What’s better than a pedicure? A Fish pedicure.

10. On one of our last nights in town, we stopped into Buddha-Bar randomly for a drink. They had a private event going on and we were invited to join in on the fun! The atomsphere in this place is amazing. Stop in for delicious food, yummy drinks and great music.

11. One of my favorite phrases is “Always make sure you look up” – the Budapest Opera House is the perfect example why.

12. New York Café – The most beautiful cafe in the world.

Is it me or does the winter make you want to hibernate? Well my family and I were determined to make the best of the start of the cold season and so we booked two short get aways for the end of November.

Hershey, Pennsylvania is known as The Sweetest Place On Earth!

My family & I, along with my nephew and Ryan’s best friends family headed there for an overnight stay at the Hershey Lodge for a day/night of rides, lights and…. well – chocolate of course.

The ride up is a little less than 3 hours from North Jersey and thanks to Mazda, we drove in style and comfort in a 2018 CX-9. This test drive came at the perfect time since we are in the market for a new SUV. The Mazda CX-9 is a mid-size, three-row crossover SUV that caters to families with seating for seven. The destination possibilities are endless thanks to CX-9’s all-weather capability from its optional predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive and class- leading fuel-ef ciency. CX-9 provides a premium driving and passenger experience, courtesy of an award-winning SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine that delivers excellent performance in everyday driving scenarios and an interior cabin that is pleasing to the sight and touch. This SUV was one of the top safety picks and all the safety features are amazing! Another one of our favorite features is the 3rd row option which is perfect for a growing family.


 As soon as we arrived in town we headed to Hershey Park! During the holiday season they transform the park into a Christmas dream filled with lights for their Christmas Candylane event. Theres more than 50 rides open, including 6 coasters, lights, live entertainment and even Santa and his reindeers make an appearance.

After Hershey Park, you are going to want to head on over to Hershey’s Chocolate World where the fun continues. One of my favorite things to do while there is creating your own candy bar. It’s so awesome to see it created right in front of your eyes and you even get to create the wrapper! At Chocolate World you can also catch a 4D movie, go on a tour of the place and do chocolate tasting. By the time we were done the kids were starving so we had to skip the Hershey Sweet Lights but if visiting during the Holidays – it’s a MUST!
We headed back to the Hershey Lodge and checked in. Our room was in the area with the pull up parking which I thought was super convenient.
We settled in and headed to the Bears Den for some yummy comfort food. Once everyone’s bellies were filled we grabbed some board games and headed to the lobby to hang around the fireplace. During the holidays Hershey Lodge is decorated so beautifully and everyone really is in the Christmas spirit. There were a ton of people in the lobby hanging out in their pjs and just having a great time.
The next morning before checking out we spent an hour at the indoor pool complex. All of the kids had the best time and I loved that there was something to do for all of them considering the difference in all their ages (2-14 years old)
Hershey was the perfect destination for a short one night staycation for the kids (& adults). Everyone had the best time and I’m already looking forward to our next visit. When the weather warms up we will be able to take advantage of their outdoor pool complex, mini golf and the basketball/tennis courts.
